Praise

Praise for The Moth

“An intelligent, enigmatic book . . . Engrossing and disturbing.”
The New York Times
   
“There is danger, violence, suspense; there are characters so vivid as to be documentaries in miniature and milieus as perceived by all the senses . . . The reader has to hope the remarkable biography of Lew Griffin will continue.”
Los Angeles Times  

Praise for the Lew Griffin Novels

“Poetic, complex and multidimensional, James Sallis’s crime novels about New Orleans detective Lew Griffin . . . are unlike any you are likely to crack open.”
Los Angeles Times

“Sallis is a sure hand—characters and prose, of course, dialogue, too, but he is also a subtle weaver of plot, with the perfect level of push. His descriptions evoke a place that seems to fully exist just around the corner, and his people speak and sweat and live and die and it’s all a great pleasure.” 
—Daniel Woodrell, author of Winter’s Bone 

“Richly atmospheric, haunting, utterly compelling, the Lew Griffin novels are really cool. James Sallis is an outstanding crime writer—an outstanding writer period.”
—Frances McDormand
 
“James Sallis is doing some of the most interesting and provocative work in the field of private eye fiction. His New Orleans is richly atmospheric and darker than noir.”
—Lawrence Block

“One of the most enjoyable and most important writers working today, James Sallis has quietly revolutionized an entire genre of literature. If you don’t ordinarily read crime fiction, you will love these books. if you do read crime fiction, you will never look at it the same after meeting Lew Griffin.”
—Sara Gran, author of the Claire DeWitt novels

“James Sallis breathes new life into the wheezing detective genre with Lew Griffin, a black resident of the seamier side of New Orleans . . . Griffin is an original creation, a loner who, in the classic private eye tradition, does things his own way, in his own time.”
San Francisco Chronicle & Examiner
